Canine Body Language Workshop (Part 1)

April 19 @ April 19 - April 19

NOTE: Due to a scheduling error, both parts of this workshop have been rescheduled. They have been pushed back one week and are now on Friday April 19th and 26th at the same time.

In this two-part workshop presented by Angela Lenz, owner and lead trainer of Tails-A-Wagging, you will learn how to better understand canine body language! Dogs can’t use their words to describe how their feeling and rely on seemingly small changes in body language to communicate with humans and dogs alike. These two workshops will cover topics like what normal play looks like in dogs, dealing with aggressive behavior in dogs, and how to help the dogs in your life.

The first workshop (April 19th – 6:15-8:30pm) will discuss neutral and appropriate behavior as a way to understand calm and relaxed body postures. We will observe normal play movements as they pertain to the family and other dogs in addition to what overstimulated and inappropriate play looks like and how to control it. During this fun lecture with videos, photos of real life examples our canine pals in action, you can walk away feeling confident knowing how dogs communicate with each other and us.

The second workshop (April 26th – 6:15-8:30pm) will tackle dealing with fearful, reactive and aggressive behavior in dogs as well as barking lunging and leash reactivity. We will talk about appeasement and calming signals, canine stress and bite prevention. You will come away with an action plan on how to directly help your own dog as well as other dogs you come in contact with in your day to day life. Using lecture, video, photographs and real life scenarios, we can help you help the dogs in your life.

You are welcome to attend either or both parts. Both workshops will be happening at Tails-A-Wagging in Bellingham, WA from 6:15pm to 8:30pm.

NOTE: Both workshops are now full! Please email us at outreach@whatcomhumane.org to be on the waitlist in case a spot opens up. Thank you so much!
